December 8, 2012 was a very special day at the Holy Cross Cathedral in Boston – it was the building’s birthday! The church, which was at one time the largest Roman Catholic church in New England, was dedicated onDecember 8, 1875.
As in so many cases in Boston, the very old joined with the very young on December 8. The Boston Children’s Chorus presented its tenth annual holiday concert in the Cathedral, with the largest audience it has ever had.
The Chorus’s mission is to harness the power and joy of music to unite the city’s diverse communities and inspire social change. Singers in the Chorus come from over 80 different communities in the Boston area, creating what has become known as a celebration for all of Greater Boston. The BCC and its 450-plus chorus members are grouped into twelve choirs in five locations, and the program on this concert included all of them.
We’ve saved you a seat in this packed audience, so join us as the Boston Children’s Chorus celebrates the holiday season!
